Colorado Avalanche

Avalanche Reverse Retro Jersey schedule is here



Reverse Retro Avalanche

For the last few seasons, figuring out what the Avalanche were going to wear each game day was fairly simple. Burgundy and blue for most home games, navy alternates for division opponents, with the occasional home uniform on the road. However, if you’re someone who likes to match the Avs every single game day (like me, a member of Uniform Addiction Anonymous), fret not! The Avs have finally released their uniform schedule, including the Reverse Retro jersey that has taken the NHL uniform community by storm, so you’ll know just what jersey to wear and when to wear it.

When We’ll See Those Beautiful Reverse Retros

It’s a shame that the NHL placed limits on how many times certain jerseys can be worn on the ice during the season, because the Reverse Retro sweaters the Avs are sporting are — for lack of a more suitable word: magnifique.

The Avalanche will wear their Nordiques Reverse Retros six times this season. Unfortunately, for everyone excited to see them in action, you’re going to have to wait nearly an entire month. The sweaters won’t make their debut until Feb. 20, against the Vegas Golden Knights at the NHL Outdoors game on a golf course on Lake Tahoe.

The full uniform combo will feature the white helmets, burgundy gloves with a white cuff, and burgundy pants with two vertical white stripes down the middle. Expect the socks to be white with two horizontal burgundy stripes on them.

Full Reverse Retro Schedule:

2/20 vs. Vegas (NHL Outdoors @ Lake Tahoe)

2/22 vs. Vegas

3/5 vs. Anaheim

3/6 vs. Anaheim

3/25 vs. Vegas

3/27 vs. Vegas

Bring On the Thirds

For the past few seasons, Colorado has reserved their navy alternates for when the team is playing against Central Division opponents. Although the divisions are all sorts of split up for this season, the Avs are going to stick to that same centralized theme (pun intended).

There is one little modification to the third jerseys this year, though. This season, the third jersey’s pants will have a singular, thick white stripe down the middle with a white band on the base of the pants.

Full Third Jersey Schedule:

2/2 vs. Minnesota

2/4 vs. Minnesota

3/18 vs. Minnesota

3/20 vs. Minnesota

4/3 vs. St. Louis

4/20 vs. St. Louis

The retros are going to look so great in that outdoor game especially if it’s snowing.


I apologize in advance for the all caps (but it’s warranted)… HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU NOT HAVE THE AVS AND KINGS PLAY EACH OTHER IN THEIR RETROS!!!!!!!!!??????? SERIOUSLY?!…(deep breaths) In a world in which the retro jerseys are white and dark depending on the team, how do you not have them play with each other? And why do they play Vegas four times!!! Also while we’re on the subject of jersey’s. The Avs need to lose the blue with the white jerseys. I didn’t think it would work before I saw them, and my assumptions were correct. I… Read more »

Sweet – Thanks Reagan. Now I know when to break out my custom Retro #19 Sakic jersey – and it looks AWESOME 🙂 – figured it was a fitting tribute to the man that is the heart of the franchise.
